ALAN PARKER ad man & film maker

"I turn on the TV sometimes, start watching something and think: 'This seems quite good, a bit familiar.' Then I realise... It's one of my movies. It's a pretty odd feeling."

"A great movie evolves when everybody has the same vision in their heads."

"Making a film is so hard that if you don't have your main actors going along with the ride with the rest of the crew it can make your life very difficult."

"Most directors have little lists in their heads of people they really want to work with."

"A lot of directors prefer the solitude of the editing process, but I revel in the craziness of what a film set is."
